Yep---Keanu Reeves, right Jacob?? I really like him, but I thought that was pretty dumb too. VERY slow, as I recall. Speaking of Keanu, I had thought about going to the new remake movie has out (The Day the Earth Stood Still), but I'd heard it wasn't that great. Did anyone go see it? It had Kathy Bates in it...

Yes the One with Keanu Reeves in it I'm Glad i'm not the Only one who does not like that movie lol

New one for the list.

We went to the theaters a few weeks ago and saw "Watchmen." About halfway thru it I tried to go to sleep because it was so boring. It's about 2 3/4 hours long and we really didn't understand it. Damis & Shiloh were with it and I had Shiloh several times close his eyes. It is definitely not for kids.

I've seen some reviews of it where it is based on a book and people love it but not us!

The one actor I did recognize (he played a superhero that had his face covered) was played by Jackie Earl Haley. If his name sounds familiar: he was in the "Bad News Bear" movie, he was the kid who always made homeruns and rode a small motorcycle & he starred along Tatum O'Neal, I believe. He also was in the movie, "Breaking Away."

My hubby & 18 year old went and saw it Misti...they liked it and aren't fans of the comics, but they're 'special effects' guys and get into that stuff. Not sure they understood it either though. grinsmiley My 14 yr old wanted to see it with them and after reading Yahoo Movie Mom's reviews, there was no way. My sister didn't check the site, and let my teen nieces go to it with friends, thinking it was another 'Batman' or something. Um, nope---far from it, so I've heard.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Ask Amy she listened to me gripe about this one!
This was one I wish I hadn't wasted a good date on.

Speaking of which, I heard that people were a bit surprised that Brad was even nominated for this, that he wasn't anything that 'special' in it. On the other hand, I heard Angelina was amazing in The Changeling and that she totally deserved to be nominated. I know how much you love this power couple Gin. grinsmiley

I actually liked What's Eating Gilbert Grape, Jacob, but I do remember it being a little slow, so I can see why you didn't like it. Leonardo DiCaprio was amazing in it though, and I love Johnny Depp. *swoon* Love Wink

Gilbert Grape..... :Hahaha: ....Gross! Sixteen Candles.....I just bought for $5. I liked it, just because I like Molly Ringwald.

I'd like to see the Chaneling. Might rent that one soon. Angelina is a much better actress than ........I'm going to shut up.

How about Smokey the Bandit? Got to love Burt and Sally!

Oh Jacob! You are cracking me up!! :Hahaha: Yeah, it's a thumbs up from me on all of those! Forest Gump is one of my all-time faves, and I can't even tell you how many times I've re-watched Sixteen Candles! grinsmiley

Gin, I think the last I saw Smokey and the Bandit, probably when I was a teen, but back then they showed it on TV repeatedly and I could never refuse watching it! Burt and Sally really were great together! Thumbsup

*Edit*, well Jacob, what do ya know! We liked the same movie!! OhMy Finally!!! ROTFL

Good for you Jacob! Applause

Wow, you found them for $44 for the entire series?! Whoa!! Now THAT is a buy! This is one series I think we'd agree that you'd love! Thumbsup

You know, shame on me but I haven't seen the Road to Avonlea....I don't see how anything could ever top Anne of Green Gables for me, but I should give it a try.

How come you don't like Forest Gump? It's such a neat movie Laughing
Here in Monterey, CA we have a restaurant called "Bubba Gump" (it's a seafood place).
The restaurant is named after the movie’s main characters Benjamin Bufford “Bubba” Blue and Forrest Gump who talked about going into shrimping business.

When you enter this restaurant, you will never miss the two huge license plate sign on each table. The red “Stop Forrest Stop” sign is used to signal that a table needs service and the blue “Run Forrest Run” means that all is well. Thumbsup



It's so delicious and fun there. :idance:

Here’s another line from the movie that says “shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey’s uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo, pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried, there’s pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. Th-that’s about it.”
:haha:

I like all those quirky, offbeat little films that Johnny Depp made. Gilbert Grape, Edward Scissorhands, Benny & Joon, Ed Wood. I thought it was neat that he gravitated to those kinds of roles instead of to the big-budget blockbusters that I'm sure he could've done if he'd wanted to.

Actually, if you put Anne of Green Gables mentally aside you'll probably enjoy it more. At least that's how it was for me. I've watched my Anne of Green Gables and Anne of Avonlea videos so many times I almost have them memorized line for line. :haha: I absolutely love those two films. So, when I first started watching Avonlea, I kind of expected a . . . . sequel, I guess. But there is a different feel to Avonlea the series, even though there are several characters who show up from the movies.

I totally fell in love with some of the characters.....Alec & Janet King were two of my favorites, even though their children end up being more of a focal point than they were, most of the time. And Gus Pike....I really liked his character - eventually. grinsmiley I had to dismiss the idea of "this one is the 'Anne' of this series" and "this one is the Diana" etc. It doesn't work that way at all. LOL! Anyway...It doesn't top Anne in my opinion - but to me, it does equal the movies in quality, and it's fun to "visit Anne's neighbors". grinsmiley

Ok Savannah (and Jacob!), you've talked me into it! Thumbsup I know what you mean Savannah...I watched Anne of Green Gables every fall (my 'seasonal' ritual, LOL!) and sometimes I can't wait until the following fall so I'll pop it in again. Because of this, I think I have everything memorized too! grinsmiley AND I know what you mean about putting a 'first' movie aside sometimes...that's true with books at times too and you just have to put that original 'idea' out of your head and just 'go with it'. I totally get you. I dearly love Marilla too, and who doesn't get a kick out of Rachel Lynde? So yeah, I WILL see this, for sure. I'll let you guys know when I do! Wink

We may have already talked about this before on the forum, I can't remember, but Johnny said in an interview that it has never been his intention to do 'blockbuster' movies, he has only wanted to do quality film, and does seek out those quirky characters. When you think about it, even Pirates was in typical "Johnny form", considering how quirky Jack Sparrow is! I love that about him as an actor...he does some pretty 'out there' things, and for the most part they end up working for him. Thumbsup

And I just realized I could have used that 'multi-quote' feature. :unsure: Whoops!

Applause "The doctor said I could go at any time..." But everyone has their own tastes! grinsmiley I mean, I still didn't like "Watchmen" though some loved it.
